STAGE 1 IS HERE AND ONLY AVAILABLE WITH OUR NEW HANDHELD!

 

WHAT IS STAGE 1?

Stage 1 was built on the foundation of our popular //M+ Flash.  Scroll down if you’d like to see what the //M+ Flash does for the 2020 BMW S1000RR.  Our Stage 1 flash includes everything our //M+ Flash includes, AND MORE!

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF STAGE 1 OVER OUR //M+ FLASH?

 

MORE DERESTRICTION

– The OEM throttle model has “soft” and “hard” limits.  The soft limits are where the 2020 S1000RR will start to close the throttle and limit torque by itself at high speed or high RPM.  We removed the top speed governor and made sure the throttle or torque isn’t limited.

 

FUELING

– MODIFIED FUELING FOR FULL TIME CLOSED LOOP AND WILL TARGET FOR PERFORMANCE (not just rideability in the //M+ flash).  The //M+ flash focuses on smooth and consistent rideability only.  It does not take peak performance into consideration.  That may sound silly given how much of an improvement the //M+ flash gives the 2020 S1000RR but on Stage 1 we decided to focus purely on performance while still taking rideability into account.  MANY hours, days, months have gone into developing the Stage 1 flash to make sure the bike is not only fast, but also reliable, smooth and consistent.  For safety we adjust the OEM wideband sensors to read +/- 35% at all times.

 

IGNITION

– MODIFIED IGNITION FOR PERFORMANCE ON VARIOUS OCTANES.  The //M+ flash did not touch any of the stock ignition tables.  Stage 1 optimizes the ignition tables for performance and reliability.  The S1000RR has multiple timing tables.  Depending on fuel quality, the bike will choose more aggressive timing tables or less aggressive (if knock is present).

 

MULTIPLE FUELS

– MR12 HORSEPOWER AND OTHER 100 OCTANE FUELING MAPS INCLUDED. One flash does it all.  Because of the adaptive ECU and OEM wideband sensors, the S1000RR is able to switch between fuels without flashing to a new map.  This means if you want to run regular 93 pump gas then switch to MR12, you do not have to change maps.  The adaptive ECU and our Stage 1 flash will account for the new fuel and change automatically to optimize performance.  The only thing the user has to do is pump the gas in the bike and ride.

 

QUICK SHIFTER

– MODIFIED QUICK SHIFTER TIMES FOR UP/DOWN SHIFTING “KILL” TIMES. Faster and smoother shifting for the OEM quick shifter. We made what was already good, even better.

 

EGT CORRECTION

– MODIFIED EXHAUST GAS TEMPERATURE (EGT) CORRECTION MAPS. These maps typically limit performance but with our testing we are able to gain more power and keep the bike just as reliable with more consistency during racing scenarios.

 

MODE LIMITERS

-SPORT MODE LIMITERS ADJUSTED. Sport mode has been adjusted to offer full power with changed traction control settings for smoother riding.

 

CORRECTED DIAGNOSTIC FAULTS

– CORRECTED DIAGNOSTIC FAULTS FOR RACING EXHAUST, RACING AIRBOX, AND SERVO REMOVALS.  It’s safe to say that this bike is just as complex as it’s four wheel counterpart.  Removal of sensor or parts from the bike usually result in some sort of fault code or CEL (check engine light).  Our Stage 1 Flash doesn’t stop any of the important warnings from showing BUT we do eliminate a few from showing for people seeking more performance from the bike.  Example, the exhaust valves on the stock exhaust system will result in a check engine light if removed.  Our flash ensures you don’t run into that issue after installing aftermarket exhaust.  Even the intake for the bike now has flappers that close off the primary inlet to the airbox below 6,000 RPM.  While these flappers are easy to remove, they result in a check engine light.  This is also addressed with our Stage 1 Flash.  Stage 1 is completely is compatible with our coming IAT kit and airbox flapper removal.

 

SAFETY

-SERVICE BULLETIN UPDATED SAFETY MAPS ADDED. Early S1000RR’s had incorrect ignition timing from the factory.  This was only at high RPM but it could result in knock (preignition of fuel in the combustion chamber).  As a result BMW issued a service bulletin and software update to rectify this issue.  We made sure to include this in our mapping while still maintaining a high level of performance and reliability.

 

DYNO PROVEN

Green = Stage 1 with MR12 Race Fuel
Blue = Stage 1 with 93 Pump Gas
Red = Baseline with 93 Pump Gas

Keep in mind the baseline includes full Akrapovic Exhaust, a Sprint high-flow air filter, IAT relocation, and modified airbox flappers.  Without these modifications the baseline would be lower.  The only thing we changed from run to run was flashing the S1000RR and adding MR12 race fuel for the final run.  We are seeing more than a 5% gain in power just from the flash on a 2020 S1000RR that is already full bolt-on.

**All runs performed same day, back to back on our in-house DynoJet**

 


WHY UPGRADE FROM OUR //M+ FLASH TO STAGE 1?

Motonosity walks us through how our new handheld tuner works and a brief summary of the Stage 1 upgrade and how it feels compared to the //M+ Flash.  For the full video review, see Motonosity’s YouTube page BY CLICKING HERE.

 

INDEPENDENT RESULTS

EJR Performance took our BrenTuning 2020 S1000RR out for some racing and found a Ducati V4.  With the Akrapovic exhaust, the Ducati V4 makes an advertised 226hp!  The Duacti was also flashed as well to make maximum power.  You can see how our Stage 1 S1000RR does more than just hold its own against the Italian super bike.  They also found a built motor Busa, a Ninja and a very fast GSXR.

 

 

HANDHELD TUNER

 

WHAT IS A HANDHELD TUNER AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING ONE?

We start with our popular OBDII Flasher+ and fully customize it.  Thoroughly tested by our own engineers, not just for its function but also durability.  We purposefully dropped this thing about 100 times just to make sure if you accidentally dropped it, it would still be a usable device.

So why buy it when you can just send in your ECU for flashing and spend less? Let’s see the breakdown.


NO DOWNTIME

No need to send in your ECU or remove it from your bike at all.  You order the handheld, it get’s delivered to you, you flash your bike.  You never miss a day of riding and no effort removing the ECU.

 

STORE MULTIPLE MAPS

When you send in your ECU, you only get one map.  You might be thinking, “why would I need more than one map?”.  Storing multiple maps means you’re able to flash for different fuels.  If you’re a serious track competitor, we can work with you to get you different mapping for different tracks.  If, for example, you’re add an exhaust to your stock bike, we can email you a file that takes the new exhaust into account with the changes you need to optimize your S1000RR’s new modifications.

 

GO BACK TO STOCK ANYTIME

Not only can you store multiple race maps, you can also flash the original, stock file back into the bike at any time and for any reason.

 

READ AND CLEAR ENGINE FAULTS

If for some reason you have an engine light, you’re able to plug in our handheld tuner and read the codes from it.  Using the codes you’re able to determine the issue with the bike.  Sometimes these codes make the Engine Light come on.  Even after the issue is fixed the engine light can stay on for a dealer to clear or stay on for a certain amount of key cycles.  The handheld can clear these codes.  As long as the issue is fixed, the handheld will eliminate the engine light.

 

HOW IT WORKS

A pretty easy step by step on how the flasher works for the 2020 S1000RR.  This video is for map loading, we will detail the original file download in the future.

 

 

 

//M+ FLASH DETAILS

 

 

Introducing our inaugural flash for the 2020+ BMW S1000RR! Utilizing our decade of experience and research into the BMW S1000RR has helped us A LOT to develop the 2020 RR Stage “//M+” Flash over last year utilizing European pre-production items.

 

What Is Stage //M+?

US and European model S1000RR’s have been restricted from the factory, with the US models having some of the worst restrictions we have ever seen on a BMW liter bike short of the 2017+ BMW K1600. These restrictions are due to many factors; insurance, safety and noise regulations (US models) as well as EURO4 regulations (Euro models). Stage //M+ was developed to remove these restrictions and unlock your S1000RR’s full potential for racing use only.

 

What’s Being Restricted?

There are quite a few software and hardware restrictions on the 2020 S1000RR and some of the restrictions work in conjunction with one another.

– Throttle Restriction

First and foremost there are HEAVY throttle restriction with the worst offender being the US model. Take a look at the photo below. You can see a comparison to the US and NON-US throttle table. Reading the top of the graph from left to right is RPM. Reading the left side of the graph from top to bottom is the gear. You can see “1.00” and “2.00” etc. “1.00” means gear number “1”. This graph reads the US and NON-US model first through sixth gear restrictions. The values inside represent OEM throttle opening percentage. Let’s look at the US model, 2.00 (second gear), first value to the left — That’s 40% throttle!! This is why we see a lot of complaints from US S1000RR owners about the bike “feeling like a 600” in the mid-range for second, third and fourth gear. Second gear will feel like a 600, third gear feels like a 750, and fourth is more like a Ducati 959!

 

– Exhaust Valve

The exhaust valve is a double edged sword. It does good by making back pressure when needed but also hinders the 2020+ S1000RR from making the most power possible at mid to upper RPM. Why would they do this? Noise regulations. The valve closed makes the bike a lot more quiet than if it were open. Even slip-on exhaust sounds almost the same as stock due to this valve closing so much. The US vs NON-US models use completely different and more aggressive exhaust valve tables for the upper and lower exhaust valves, but both bikes are heavily restricted in the grand scheme of things. Opening these valves for racing use allows for some horsepower as they are both gear and RPM dependent just like the butterfly valves for the throttle. Lower gears will reduce sound and power by 3-5HP by only opening the valve less then 100% even in high RPM’s.

See the graph below.  We extracted this table from the US model software and is unmodified.  From left to right signifies RPM and the 0-6 on the left from top to bottom represents neutral to 6th gear.  The values inside the table represent how far open the OEM software allows the exhaust valve to open.  You can see there’s only a 45% opening at 10,000 RPM in second gear.  Neutral being the worst.  You won’t win any rev competitions with a 30% exhaust valve opening!

– RPM Limiter

The stock RPM limiter is set to 14,500 RPM. As you notice with this limiter most bikes will crash into the rev limiter while still gaining power. We have been testing 14,800 and 15,000 for a while with power still climbing and no side effects.

– Fueling

The 2020 BMW S1000RR fueling is set rich for exhaust gas temperature purposes than it needs to be from the factory. It is also set artificially lean at idle, cruise and warm up which results in stalling and cold/hot start issues. The new S1000RR is factory equipped with 5-wire widebands (new for the S1000RR and any motorcycle we know of!) and is very precise on targeting a specific AFR (Air/Fuel Ratio) through a closed loop corrective system from idle to redline. Being factory rich also helps it cool the turtleshell exhaust system and meet street standards. However, fuel can be trimmed for better result as it targets real time fuel corrections (think Dynojet PC5 Autotuner but better). Luckily is the death of the piggyback fuel controller as the factory system and is 200 times better and more effective per gear, per EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature), and per throttle position than any other aftermarket oxygen sensor deleted alpha-N piggyback system (Rapidbike, PC5, Bazazz) on the market. This also means in theory you can run race fuels, light ethanol mixes, light nitrous mixes as well with one tune — we will test this in the future.

– Heat Management

Let’s face it, this bike rides insanely hot! Due to the new exhaust system and idle/cruise air fuel mixtures the bike has it is a recipe to being constantly in the 215+F range and burning your legs while you ride, making it uncomfortable anywhere you’re not going 50+MPH. We have solved this issue by adding our low fan temp modification to this flash level as a standard baseline feature along with different cruise mapping which has curbed temps extensively.

 

What Do We Do To Fix These Issues?

– Throttle Restriction

We remove the throttle restrictions across the board. We do not force load a European file/Eeprom as this has its own set of flaws and could force your bike to have an identity crisis or get you in trouble with BMW. This restriction is software based only and doesn’t require anything but a software modification on our side to remedy. As soon as you get your ECU back to your motorcycle, it will feel like a night and day difference from stock. In some gears the bike is missing 50HP and 40TQ! This is how a BMW S1000RR should feel. If you’ve ever ridden a 2020 S1000RR you know how fast and furious 6th gear feels compared to 2nd. Imagine that feeling in 2nd at low speeds. It’s wild.

See the photo below we took of a US model bike. The red lines represent the OEM throttle restriction and the blue lines represent our Stage //M+ flash on the same motorcycle. The result is a huge gain in torque and horsepower in the mid-range. This is where the most complaints of the bike are which is now fixed. Testing done back to back on our dynojet.

– Exhaust Valve

We still utilize the stock exhaust valve to give you maximum power but also open it up when you need to make peak power gains and the sound you want.

– RPM Limiter

We moved the limiter from the stock 14,500RPM to 14,800RPM. We have tested this extensively on our own in-house S1000RR and found that it’s still making power to 14,800RPM without any negative side effects to the engine. This is optional when ordering.

– Fueling

We program the S1000RR to target a better AFR (Air/Fuel Ratio) to make a little more power along with fixing drivability and idle.

– Diagnostically Invisible

This flash will not show up on current BMW diagnostic tools. This is not just a Euro RR file. A Euro file simply has 2-4 restrictions removed but still has issues with fueling, cooling, exhaust valve and being a visible modification to a service location by throwing an incompatible file mismatch at the dealer level among incorrect VIN# and other related issues that you don’t want to get into.

Benefits:

– 40TQ / 50HP gain in lower RPM’s in certain gears (see graphs below)
-2-4hp from exhaust valve management
-Cooler riding temps
-Cold start, hot start stalling issue solved. Idle is smooth and consistent
-Improved throttle response in all gears
-Longer Powerband
-Better exhaust note (as bike is silent stock due to exhaust valve)

 

Dyno Graphs

**Below are some graphical testing of different gears and scenarios we performed on our 2020 BMW S1000RR**

Flashed vs Stock

The graph below represents a third gear pull, back to back.  Our //M+ Flash vs the stock baseline.  We did these pulls in third gear to show just how crazy these limitations are in the lower gears, second through fourth gear being the worst.  The blue line is 100% stock.  The red line is our //M+ Flash that includes a higher redline, derestricted ECU and a Sprint P08 air filter.  You can see there is a gain up top but the biggest gain is the mid and low range.  This difference make your bike feel like an animal.

 

Below is a HORSEPOWER only representation of our 100% stock 2020 BMW S1000RR.  The seperate colors represent different gears we overlayed on top of one another to show the restriction by gear.

Red = Second Gear
Purple = Third Gear
Green = Fourth Gear
Yellow = Fifth Gear

You can see how restricted the bike is in the lower gears but starts to open up in fifth and sixth gear.  Our flash eliminates these restrictions.

 

Below is the exact same test, but showing torque differences in 2nd-3rd-4th-5th gear on a stock USA 2020 BMW S1000RR bike.  The colors represented are the same as the above graph.

 

Below is a 2nd gear vs 6th gear pull (LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE IN LIMITERS!) on a stock USA 2020 BMW S1000RR bike.

 

Below is a 3rd gear with and without our exhaust valve management changes on a stock USA 2020 BMW S1000RR bike. We chose 3rd gear as the bike doesn’t restrict the sound as much in higher gears but it does in the lower gears. It does from 1st-4th.  The blue line represents our //M+ flash without restriction and the red line represents stock.

 

Below is another test, why European files don’t work as well as US files in 6th gear. Here is a back to back test of the low end differences of a 6th gear throttle management file for EURO VS. USA. The USA file regularly makes a little more low and midrange.  Even Euro S1000RR’s need a derestriction.  Though the restrictions on the Euro models are nearly as bad in the lower gears, the //M+  flash can still help make power.

 

Look below. To conclude our testing, a Sprint Air filter was installed in our 2020 BMW S1000RR and tested back to back. Back to back on the dyno in very hot conditions.  The red line represents the Sprint P08 filter test and the blue line represents the stock air filter.  No software changes were made during these dyno pulls. We strongly recommend the Sprint Filter with the //M+ flash.

 

 

SIMULATED ACCELERATION TESTING

This test was performed on our Mustang Dyno.  Because Mustang Dyno’s simulate load and wind resistance, we can get a pretty good idea of how the bike will perform, while in a controlled environment without breaking any speed laws.  All tests were performed back to back with same starting gear, dyno settings and load to ensure accuracy.  Do not take these numbers as an absolute for your own acceleration times.  There are innumerable variables that may cause your times to be faster or slower than what we tested.  This test is purely to display the difference between stock and flashed to show improvements.

The first test is simulated 60-130mph WITH the stock restrictions.  You can see the time is takes to go from 60-130mph is 4.36 seconds.

 

With our //M+ flash removing the restrictions, you can see a HUGE improvement from 60-130mph.  The S1000RR goes from 4.36 seconds to 3.82 seconds!!  That’s almost half a second improvement from just removing restrictions!

 

We went a step further and performed another test at a lower RPM to really show how heavy the restrictions are.  This test is 40-120mph.  Starting at a lower RPM really let’s us see how bad the low and mid-range is with the stock restrictions.  This test is WITHOUT our flash.  We managed to get a 5.42 second 40-120mph.

 

WITH our //M+ flash the 40-120mph time went from 5.42 to 4.32 seconds!!  That’s almost a full second difference!  It’s clear our //M+ flash yields HUGE improvements over the stock (restricted) software.

SATISFIED CLIENTS MAKE US HAPPY

  • “ Bike is running awesome and no out of the ordinary popping under load during downshifts at high rpm. My hats off to your team for making me feel like I have a personal tuner at my disposal. Really appreciate the quick turnaround to get me straight. I can definitely feel the extra power! ”

    Andy Young - Maryland Aug 28, 2018
  • “ This product is amazing.  I feel like I have a better version of my bike.  Like it should have come this way.  The throttle smoothness and even power band make it a joy to ride.  I no longer feel as if I'm riding a wild bronco lol. Thank you again, I didn't think that a L-twin could behave this well.  Also, your customer service is the best.  I could always reach you by email or phone.  I will tell everyone I know about this fantastic addition.  Keep up the great work, guys! ”

    Dan Martinez May 01, 2017
  • “ I have a 2015 S1000RR and was extremely skeptical when I heard about BrenTuning and the power they got out of an ECU flash.  After speaking with the team at BrenTuning, all my hesitations were put to rest and I haven't stop winning first place trophies since! BELIEVE THE HYPE! ”

    Troy Gleason - California Jul 10, 2016
  • “ Bren and his team did an awesome job on my bmw s1000rr. Went from 179rwhp an 83 rwtq to 206 rwhp and 93rwtq. Customer service was great and I highly recommend them for any of y'all that want to make that power!! ”

    Paul Jackson - Texas Jul 10, 2016
  • “ Purchased the tune for my 2015 BMW S1000RR. Was skeptical at first and initially had a bunch of questions. Chris was very patient with me and answered them all. Had some problems after receiving my ecu back and Chris was very helpful in getting all my issues worked out. Bike runs fantastic. Definitely worth it. Thank you again guys for dealing with my questions and taking care of everything before and after the purchase. Fantastic customer service. ”

    Cody Hunsucker - Tennessee Jul 10, 2016
  • “ After doing some research it was obvious that Brentuning was the best option for tuning of my S1000RR. I wont go into details but after multiple overnighting of parts to me at no additional charge, I'm really impressed and satisfied with the end result and I haven't even tried out my race fuel tune yet! To top if off I received a random care package of goodies from Chris today. The customer service at Brentuning is probably the best I've received from any business I've dealt with. Their email response times are unreal as well, lol. Literally sometimes instantly, kinda weird. lol. I would recommend any and everyone to Brentuning for your S1000RR tuning solution. If anyone has any questions or are hesitant before purchasing, feel free to shoot me a message and I'll help / assist / give you a more detailed opinion on my experience as well. ”

    Trey Hull - Texas Jul 10, 2016
  • “ I have the Bren Tuning ECU flash on my 2015 BMW S1000RR and it is unbelievable how fast this bike is. This tune is the best thing I got for my bikes. I have also did the Bren Tune for my 2014 BMW S1000r for which it just made this bike really nice. Bren Tuning is the best. ”
